Cytarabine, an analog of deoxycytidine, is an important agent in the treatment of ovarian carcinoma, acute myeloid and lymphoblastic leukemia. Its mechanism of action has been attributed to an interference with DNA replication. The plasma membrane has received increasing attention as a possible target of antitumor drugs, where the drugs may act as growth factor antagonists and receptor blockers, interfere with mitogenic signal transduction or exert direct cytotoxic effects. Furthermore, it has… CONTINUE READING
